CASE REPORT • Notching into a Diagnosis—Incorporating Doppler Interrogation into Point-of-Care Ultrasonography to Diagnose a Submassive Pulmonary Embolism.

Often, patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) present with nonspecific symptoms. This, in turn, pose a diagnostic dilemma. The authors present in this case report a case of submassive PE diagnosed in a patient utilizing point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) in the emergency department (ED)....

CASE STUDY • ‘Hydro-point’ – The Forgotten and Unspoken Entity in Hydropneumothorax

Lung point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) showed hydro-point, dynamic air–fluid interface (DAFI) sign and a characteristic triple sign, namely barcode sign/stratosphere sign, hydro-point and sinusoidal pattern in right lung. These features are seen in effusive pneumothorax......
